Hitler Voicemail Message Brings Jail Time for Austrian Man

Actually, this sounds pretty funny, but I know that folks are a little touchy about jokes of such nature in (especially) that part of Europe. ;-)

An AP newswire article, via MSNBC, reports that:

An Austrian man who used an oath of loyalty to Adolf Hitler for his cell phone voice mail has been sentenced to two months in prison.

Police came across the message on the 20-year-old’s phone in 2004 when they called to question him about a burglary.

Prosecutors say he downloaded the message from the Internet. It includes the repeating of the phrase “Sieg Heil!”
